Livingston County, IL – The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic safety campaign Nov

law enforcement agencies across Illinois to reduce highway fatalities.
During the campaign, Livingston County Sheriff’s Office handled:
14 – seat belt citations
15 – Expired/No Registration
10 – DUI arrests
14 – Disobeyed Traffic Control Device
1 – Texting
4 – suspended/revoked licenses
3 – uninsured motorists
29 – speeding citations

“We issue tickets to remind drivers and passengers that seat belt use isn’t a suggestion, it’s the law,”
said Sheriff Ryan Bohm. “This year’s campaign was successful in grabbing people’s attention with highly
visible enforcement methods. As always, our goal is a safe community with safe drivers.”

The Thanksgiving enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the
Illinois Department of Transportation and is part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and
“Click It or Ticket” campaigns.
